This consultancy report presents the rationale for a concerted push to expand the use of land and land-rights transaction tools to achieve conservation and climate resilience objectives in the Pacific region. It draws on two background studies: a global review of land and land-rights transaction tools, supplemented by regional and country-specific experience with transaction tools in the Pacific; and a feasibility assessment for expanding use of these tools in four focal Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs) – Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and French Polynesia. These two studies combined desk research, key informant interviews, and stakeholder consultation workshops to produce the analysis presented in this report.
